Prospect: Joshua Moore
Status: SI All-American candidate
Vitals: 6-foot-2, 195 pounds
School: Atlanta (Ga.) Marist School
Position: Safety/Wide Receiver
Committed to: UCLA
Projected Position: Strong Safety
Frame: Tall and well-proportioned. Above-average width across shoulders and chest. Long arms and torso. Powerful, tightly-wound thighs and calves. Developed trunk. Plenty of room for more mass and muscle.
Athleticism: Good burst. Above-average speed at best, but fast to reach fifth gear. Adequate quickness and overall flexibility. Strong and powerful. Solid ball skills.
Instincts: Decisive in movements. Quick to diagnose run vs. pass and attack toward ball. Big hitter in run support and as deep center-fielder. Sound tackler in open space; gets low and churns feet.
Polish: Clear understanding and awareness of coverage concepts, responsibilities. Clean footwork as safety, but struggles to turn hips and run with receivers. Limited ability in one-on-one coverage.
Bottom Line: Moore is a big, versatile safety with the athleticism and instincts to affect both the run and pass. Likely evolves into strong safety with additional weight, playing linebacker in certain formations. Profiles as multi-year starter for Stanford, with Sunday upside depending on role and size development.
